From the parking lot, cross CO 26, and ascend the jeep road that you will see on the east. Follow for 3 miles. This section of trail is called Dakota Ridge. A couple of tough climbs, but mostly just riding the ridge. Lot\'s of slick rock. (pretty technical) You can see Denver to the left, and Red Rocks Park to the right. After descending down from the ridge, you will cross a small road over to the Red Rocks Trail which is also 3 miles. Red Rocks trail is totally different from the Dakota ridge....much greener and smoother. It\'s mostly a single track dirt trail. A couple of climbs, but not bad at all. This is not nearly as technical, and the scenery is amazing. You will be riding through towering red rocks and beautiful shrubbery. This trail loops back up to the parking area. So you have a 6 mile loop with slick rock, desert, sand, red rock, single track, beautiful scenery, and skill levels for everyone. (less skilled or in shape riders might want to do just the red rock side, which is still great fun!!)
